The Old Republic’s servers had to be taken down for emergency patching today, and the announcement that they’re back up stated:

All servers are now back up and running! Please note that you will download a small patch upon login (approx. 200MB). Thank you for your patience. As a reminder, due to today's unexpected maintenance, all active subscribers will receive a full day of game time as compensation.

200 megabytes is a small patch by modern standards. I can remember using a 300 baud modem, and how upgrading to 1200 baud meant that my computer could finally download text faster than I could read it.

I can remember when 200MB would swallow up most of my hard drive and now we can carry more than that in our pocket.

But I appreciate the 1 day of game time. That's something I hope Bioware is able to influence the industry (read: Blizzard) on.

Oh, yeah -- you're playing SWTOR?
